Hard disk space not getting listed for ESXi
Posted on 2011-09-22
Installed VMware ESXi5.0 on dell server, hard disks are configured with RAID5. ESXi is installed on pendrive and hard disk space availble is 1.2TB, from the vsphere client created data storage of 250GB and created VM and also installed guest OS now required to create few more datastore and use it for the VMs but hard disk is not getting listed when done the below steps:
Logged in to vspheres client did the following:
Storage/Add Storage/Select Type/Disk/Lun when click on Next Disk space is not getting listed.
Please help how to make the remaining space of the server hard disk to be availble for the ESXi so that can create LUN's and use it for creating the VM's
Request you to also suggest me is this the recommended practice or please suggest me the best practice. Thanks in advance.
